I have used the Bridgit software a few times between 2 schools. We split the screen and one class wrote on the left and the other class wrote on the right. We could hear each other as well as see each other's drawings instantly on each SMARTBoard. It was a cool experience that the students loved.
Thanks for the response. I was thinking that in this era of "21st Century Skills" this tool was such an easy way for lots of teachers and students to communicate/collaborate. I am working for SMART now. SMART has a new business notebook called Meeting Pro Premium and Bridgit runs along with it so that every time you open the program you are in a meeting and that meeting could be happening anywhere. It has been such an eye opener to me to see that everything we were talking about as needs to be addressed by K-12 is really how the business world operates. Teachers so often tend to dismiss something new as the next new trend that will go by just as all of the others, but not so with this. The world out there has changed dramatically.
